I, Daniel Blake

I, Daniel Blake
Drama | 2017 | R. 1hr 40min
CAST: Dave Johns, Hayley Squires, Sharon Percy DIRECTOR: Ken Loach SHOWN WITH CAPTIONS | ENDS JUNE 22

Winner of the Palme d'Or at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival, the latest from legendary director Ken Loach is a gripping, human tale about the impact one man can make. Gruff but goodhearted, Daniel Blake (Dave Johns) is a man out of time: a widowed woodworker who's never owned a computer, he lives according to his own common sense moral code. But after a heart attack leaves him unable to work and the state welfare system fails him, the stubbornly self-reliant Daniel must stand up and fight for his dignity, leading a one-man crusade for compassion that will transform the lives of a struggling single mother (Hayley Squires) and her two children. Graced with humor and heart, I, Daniel Blake is a moving, much-needed reminder of the power of empathy from one of the world's greatest living filmmakers.

This is a simple story about a hot topic. It's wonderfully told, full of deep compassion, scalding rage and surprising humor. It's not to be missed.
Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune
I, Daniel Blake, is a film imbued with dignity, grace and great sadness -- as well as a bit of humor and a lot of anger.
